School based counseling
The purpose of KIPP Academy’s counseling program is to empower all of our students to reach their fullest potential by providing a comprehensive school counseling program to support their academic, social, and emotional development. We believe that social/emotional support for students is inextricably linked to academic growth and achievement. We work to create a safe environment for our students to identify their interests and abilities, enhance self-expression and control, practice conflict-resolution skills and develop other competencies that will strengthen our students’ capabilities.
Special Education Services & Multi Language Learners
KIPP Academy provides extensive Special Education services in order to meet the unique needs detailed in a student’s IEP. Students receive services through general education teachers, special education teachers and related service providers. Multi language learners participate fully in KIPP Academy’s curriculum. Students may receive supplemental support from an MLL teacher to assist in English language acquisition. This service is provided in accordance with the student’s language level and is communicated to families.
To provide a well-rounded and rigorous education that prioritizes the whole student so that they can live a life of choice, freedom, and happiness.
KALC Panthers are curious, creative, and critical of the world around them. From 9th-12th grade, KALC panthers develop a sound understanding that intellectualism is the counter-narrative to white supremacy culture and the negative stereotypes about their identity as achievers. Students already come to us as experts of their own lived experiences, and we build upon that in our building. They feel empowered to interrogate and be critical about the spaces they occupy or desire to occupy with a sense of agency and a call to critical action.
